Trusting further in basic goodness and daring to experience the sharp edge of reality, we move forward with gentleness, increased awareness, and inquisitiveness about the world, as it is. We find that we can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness.

Doug McCanne.  In 1975, while he was living in Canada, Doug became a student of Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s outrageous message then, that we could be who we are completely, has continued to motivate Doug through the ups and downs of this path all these years. He has taught in the Shambhala tradition over the past 15 + years at Shambhala centers in the US and Europe, and at the Oregon State Penitentiary. He and his wife, Jay, moved to Portland in 2005. Now retired, he enjoys house-holding, gardening, camping, hiking and the many cultural offerings of the wonderful city of Portland, Oregon. He has three grown sons and a grandson.
